‘Family Guy’ asks ‘overprivileged Jews’ for an Emmy


From JTA:

“Family Guy” appealed for an Emmy Award by asking “overprivileged Brentwood Jews” to “let us into your little club.”

The ad was created as part of the FOX comedy’s “for your consideration” DVD mailer to Emmy voters, the Hollywood award news website Gold Derby reported. The awards are presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

On Twitter, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane shared the photo, billing it “the Emmy ad the trades refused to run,” referring to Hollywood trade publications.

Actually the full ad, viewable here, said:

Come on, you bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews. Let us into your little club.

Peter Griffin wasn’t talking about Hillcrest.

As you know, I don’t care for “Family Guy” for the same reasons that Cartman tried to get the show canceled. But I do enjoy the occasionally Jewish humor comical. Who could forget “When You Wish Upon a Weinstein?”
